Oh, deary me ... this just isn't good news for the royal family. In the latest episode of their privacy being violated something fierce, a German tabloid website has published a photo of Kate Middleton's butt, which was taken when her skirt blew up while she and Prince William were in Australia.
And just wait until you hear how Bild.de described the pic. The publication said, "Photos show our favourite Duchess Kate, 32, in the Australian Blue Mountains. The rotor blades of the royal helicopter swirl the air so that Kate's summer dress blew up – giving a clear view of her beautiful bum!"
Duh. Of course I checked out the now infamous Kate bum photo -- and let's just say her derriere is even more perky and exquisite than we expected it to be. Damn.
But there is one tiny silver lining to Kate's latest exposed body part scandal. Apparently the British press were first offered the photos, and they refused. (At least her own country has some respect for her.)
After that, they were sold to the highest bidder, which turned out to be Bild.de.
Oh, wait -- did I forget to mention the worst part of this whole deal? Um, the shot of Kate's backside happened to be published right next to pictures of Kim Kardsahian and Khloe Kardashian's famous behinds.
Doh! If having her bum on display for the world to see isn't bad enough, then having it compared to the KDash girls' rear ends definitely takes the cake.
Seriously, can you think of anything more insulting? Poor Kate.
Sigh. Sadly, I highly doubt this is the last time a tabloid will capitalize on her unfortunate wardrobe malfunctions, as money speaks volumes when it comes to things of this nature.
But still, Kate might want to pay a little more attention to the types of dresses she wears while traveling by helicopter from now on -- just to err on the side of caution.
Do you think Kate's privacy was violated here?
